cool stuff i like


Hello duckies! I've been a bit scarce - been getting all the materials and books ready for The Cozy Winter book boxes that are mailing out this week and next week - this theme is SOLD OUT, thank you to all who ordered! If you missed my news about boxes, please visit this post, as some changes are taking place. The next box theme I'll be sending out will be British boxes in March! It was my birthday recently, and I received several lovely books - I'll show and tell about them on Instagram SOON.


Online things of interest:

I just bought this puzzle for myself. Is this not the most hygge thing you've ever seen??

Orange Marmalade Cake. We're a family of marmalade lovers to such a degree that we could give Paddington a run for his money! So I'm making this asap.

LOVE this IKEA hack of making a spice rack from a dollhouse.

Very fun home tour of David Harbour's NYC apartment.

Next step for us is getting my husband to curb his dairy.

My dream!

The costumes of 'Little Women'.

I would love to see this movie.

Pockets, shawl collar, AND buttons? Is this the perfect cardigan?? I got the ivory ombre color and it was half price.

Sharing for the people not on Facebook. Absolutely delightful! Florence Pugh eating British food.


Cool Book of the Week: 'The Imaginaries' by the most magical, luminous magician of an artist and writer, Emily Winfield Martin. OH HOW I ADORE HER. Her Instagram account alone is worth the price of admission into her enchanting world. I will seriously buy every book she creates until the end of time. This one is a collection of her art, along with a mysterious caption for each picture, prompting you to tumble further into a reverie of imagination. This will be released this February and is available for pre-order now! I can't wait.


Have a lovely rest of your week! Any plans for the Lunar New Year? I think we'll be having dumplings and noodles, and stringing up red lanterns for luck.
